The scales of the maps are brought into accord among themselves and all maps are now laid so, that a turn of the atlas is no longer necessary at use.
The extensions of the atlas partly consist of the special depiction of geographic important and interesting territories, part in detailed description of the geological, climatic and economic conditions; namely the geological conditions also of the single European countries are depicted on special [little] maps.
A special diligence is devoted to the depiction of the Germanity, by not only the foreign languages in the German Reich and the German colonies in Europe are recorded, but also the settlements of the Germans in South America, Australia and South Africa etc. are recorded on own [little] maps.
The “comparison maps” might awaken the greatest interest, these are maps on which non-European ratios are assigned on European countries.
For those interested, who appreciate large map images, it is pointed out, that our hitherto atlas in the format 39 ½ x 26 cm, which we have expanded from 74 pages to 126 pages and for which the mentioned improvements are also apply, is published further on under the title „LORECK und WINTER, Atlas für Höhere Lehranstalten“, and simultaneously will come into the trade at the price of [Reichs]Marks 7.-.
Also as hitherto, this edition can be obtained in four parts.With the thanks, which we want to express at this point to the many friends of our company, for their valuable suggestions regarding the aformentioned reworks and which is, in particular, dedicated to the Verlagsbuchhandlung Chr. Herm. Tauchnitz in Leipzig, for providing the map on “Die Vergletscherung im deutschen Alpenvorlande” [“The glaciation in the German Alpine foreland”] we connect the request to all who belong to the teaching profession or close standing interested parties, to communicate to us possible wishes and suggestions in regard to further improvements and supplements; at any time and as far as possible, we gladly will take those into account in our both editions.
